Default NSV—bought an XL!

I went to Old Navy yesterday to buy some work clothes that I needed ASAP. I picked up a cami to go under a sweater, so by default I got it in an XXL. Got home to try it on, and it was too big!! Like the band hung down around my upper thighs instead of sitting on my hips like it's supposed to.

I know, I know, Old Navy clothes run huge, but for a while I couldn't even fit into an XXL there, and I got to exchange on for an XL today!

Thanks! Now I can't wait to fit in a REAL XL instead of an ego-stroking Old Navy size
